Press Release - 03 February 2009

Students break-dance for charity

Cheerleaders, body-poppers and tap-dancers will be strutting their stuff at the University of Bath at the weekend (7 February) to raise money for charity.

It’s part of a dance show organised by the Bath branch of the Students in Free Enterprise(SIFE) group.

SIFE funds and supports economic opportunities for teams of students all over the world, including teaching.

One of its recent projects, Experanza Economica, was run by final-year student Alexa Bellingham creating a trade link between the University and a charity in Bolivia to sell hand-made jewellery and crafts in the UK in a sustainable way.

Catherine Stambouzou, event organiser, said: “The show is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness of SIFE and all its good work around the world and a chance for students to showcase their societies.”

The show, Strictly for Charity, will be staged at the University’s Arts Lecture Theatre at 7.30pm on Saturday, 7 February.

Tickets are available by calling SIFE on 01225 386777.

The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for quality research and teaching. View a full list of the University's press releases:
